How Georgia Swimming Pool Accidents in Happen 

Swimming pool accidents are particularly tragic because they often involve children and are entirely preventable Some of the most common causes of swimming pool accidents include:

Lack of Adequate Supervision

Arguably the most common cause of swimming pool accidents, a lack of proper supervision is especially common when children are involved. If there is no lifeguard or if a lifeguard is not properly trained, the chance of an accident increases dramatically. It is critical to keep a watchful eye on children near swimming pools. Drowning accidents can occur in as little as five minutes, according to estimates by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). During parties or gatherings, the attending parents should take turns being the designated “pool watcher.”

Atlanta Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer Explains How Defective Equipment Leads to Drowning

Defective equipment can cause sudden accidents resulting in serious physical injury or death. It is vital to properly maintain ladders, diving boards, and flotation devices in good working condition. In fact, many pool owners do not even risk installing diving boards because of the potential dangers involved. Additionally, all pools should have anti-entrapment devices to prevent swimmers’ clothing, hair, or limbs from getting caught in a drain. Missing or defective anti-entrapment devices are responsible for many fatal accidents.

Slips and Falls Arounds Pools

Always remember that the area around the pool is usually wet from people walking and splashing. Any smooth pool surface, for example, tiles, can be very slippery when wet. There are hundreds of injuries from swimming pool slips and falls each year. There are surfaces available that are less slippery, such as slate and honed travertine tiles, which have a textured surface. Additionally, running in the pool area should be strictly forbidden.

Inadequate Security Incidents Need an Atlanta Swimming Pool Accident Lawyer to Investigate 

To keep small children and others safe, swimming pools should be outfitted with proper fencing and some kind of latched gate to prevent anyone from sneaking into the pool area, falling in, and drowning. 

Swimming Pool Chemical Burn Injuries

Swimming pools are typically treated with chlorine, which is popular because it sanitizes to kill bacteria and germs, and oxidizes to control organic material from perspiration and body oils. However, chlorine is a chemical that can cause a reaction. 

Chlorine reactions may include red, itchy skin or hives. A chlorine reaction is not an allergy but is actually “irritant dermatitis,” like a chemical burn, caused by hypersensitivity to this natural irritant. In addition, studies have suggested that frequent swimming in chlorinated pools and exposure to chlorine may increase the risk of developing asthma and other respiratory allergies, both in adolescents and in adults.
